WoolSafe publishes new cleaning standard

A new carpet-cleaning standard, WS1000, "The Maintenance And Cleaning Of Wool Floor Coverings" was published by The WoolSafe Organization at the end of June.

WS1000 covers the properties of wool floor coverings relevant to their maintenance, the planning of maintenance programs, available cleaning systems, equipment, chemicals suitable for use on wool, and health, safety and environmental aspects. It also features a detailed spot-removal guide and a list of WoolSafe-approved products.

The 34-page document took more than one year to complete, and contains the most up-to-date knowledge available on the subject, according to The WoolSafe Organization.
